When one thinks of a luxury vacation, images of sun-soaked beaches, tropical cocktails, and palm trees typically come to mind. But dare to swap your swimsuit for a parka, palm trees for icebergs, and dolphins for penguins and discover an enchanted place where luxury cruising meets pure wonder. Antarctica awaits.
Seabourn is redefining high living on the high seas with luxurious Antarctic cruise offerings. As such, South America to South Pole itineraries should quickly perch at its rightful place — the top of your travel wish list.
Sail and step where few have gone before with Seabourn. Historically, Antarctica’s isolation and the necessary rigors of the journey kept all but the most intrepid of travelers away. Those who do venture to the fringes of the South Pole come away with stories of its magnificence. Trip adventure highlights include daily Zodiac landings, catamaran-ing the Beagle Channel, and kayaking South Georgia Island. Walk on the Wild Side with a hike across stunning landscapes to spot wildlife and sights few have seen before.
Depending on the cruise you choose, you’ll have the option to sail by volcanos, fjords, and lakes on the Chilean coastline, spot the imposing glaciers of Patagonia, and ignite your senses with a taste South American culture.
